Yusuf Mehdi, senior vice president of Microsofts Interactive Entertainment Business, held a presentation at the D:Dive Into Media conference, where he boasted that the PlayStation 3 isnt as good of an entertainment console, something he thinks everybody knows. Lovely. As part of his talk on how the 360 has transitioned from a gaming console to an entertainment console (because thats what every gamer wants) he revealed that 18 billion hours of entertainment have been consumed on Xbox, much of which is from Netflix. Netflix, meanwhile, have said that the PS3 is their most used platform"

thanks microsoft for making an entertainment console and ignoring the gaming side of it, that what people want from a console obviously, oh wait.

Sony pumps new ips and many exclusives but we have NEXTFIX AND FACEBOOK! Microsoft logic at its best

Of course its not as good because PS3 is Better

no games, no free online, halo every single year, no blu-ray and so on.. its far better than any other console released this generation.

microsoft is a sore loser

it's bad enough that you have to pay for XBL to use netflix, but I just couldn't stand using it on the xbox after they decided for some INCREDIBLY STUPID reason to remove the party feature for it that let me watch stuff with friends in an update that also made the UI total crap,

Yeah, I bet you are one of those lemming alts! Funny how everyone speaking the truth simply in your head equals, "oh my god, they dont blindly worship M$ the way I do, so that means they all must be alt accounts" I bet you get told that you are delusional often? Am I correct?

I agree. The PS3 is a (GAMING) console.
#66 Posted by brofists (2185 posts) -
Is any one else fed up with the direction M$ has been taking? Well anyway, The fact is Microsoft has finished dead LAST two gens in a row Yet they continue to sit in their ivory towers Isnt that annoying? The only reason why Microsoft was even able to get close, is because Sony wasnt at their best, but now Sony is at their best and will be at their best for the PS4, and through out all the PS4's life cycle etc. Here's what i want to see happen... I want to see Sony really go up against Microsoft and annihilate Microsoft with their own tactics. And they will. Be afraid...be very very afraid Microsoft! I know you are afraid too Microsoft, considering how much you have been damage controlling lately lmao

There is no defending Xbox anymore. Microsoft flat out admits it's not a gaming console anymore. Halo is not worth the price of admission anymore with 343i and Microsoft running it into the ground. Gears has gone kinect. Forza is easily swapped for Gran Turismo. 

Time to accept defeat Xbox fans. Microsoft has.

they never did lol. back in 05-06 they wanted it be the place where everyone goes to for entertainment. Thats why they was the first ones to update their system with APPS

What possible reason would they have to be jealous lol The 360 has no games, basic online play is a 60 $ a year extortion fee, apps are hidden behind that 60 $ a year xbox live paywall fee etc Mean while, PS3 gamers are getting the very best in gaming, free online, and blue ray etc They arent the ones getting Gears/Halo/Forza + kinect shoved down their throats! You lems are the ones who are jealous and its showing! M$ are the ones on full on damage control mode too, so you know Sony is doing something right M$ is the one making ridiculous comments while sounding delusional Unfortunately there are a couple of xbots like you who still defend them, But thankfully there are many more people aware to the b.s of M$, and M$ is getting called out on it all, which is awesome! Bottom line, you lems are in full blown damage control mode just like M$ is lol Microsoft, along with their delusional fans have become the running joke of this industry

Pay $60 a year to enjoy MS better entertainment system, lems.

But yet the 360 has more games and a better library according to critic scores. Also the games they share almost always run better on the 360.

Proof?

Nothing beats BluRay in both audio and video quality, the resolution is just one part of what makes the picture quality great, and the streaming services are just ok at best. Netflix is great for TV series and low budget movies. The PS3 has been a great entertainment system, and also a very good media server.
#77 Posted by PowerB4 (14 posts) -
One of the reasons the 360 was good early on was because you weren't paying extra for a blue ray player. If MS makes their next console more expensive because of kinect built-in or other non-gaming entertainment they will make the same mistake Sony did. Early adopters of new consoles usually are core gamers who only care about games and price.
#78 Posted by shellcase86 (1934 posts) -

My only retort to that is anecdotal.

We had a game night at my place, had over another couple over. After some drinks we wanna listen to music. My friend who was playing stuff from his phone says to his wife, "Dang wish I could play this song louder for them." I told him to just to download it from his phone to my PS3. He said it couldn't do that. I kindly take his phone hook up to the Wifi, find it on my PS3. DL's his catalogue of recent downloads. Disconnected. Then proceeded to play his song he made.

His wife said, "We need to get a Playstation." They have a 360, but his wife told me they could only stream media not DL.

#88 Posted by lundy86_4 (43866 posts) -

Unnecessary, but I don't overly disagree. Live and the 360 have come leaps and bounds in terms of offering a multitude of entertainment from their one box (more than gaming). However, Sony aren't too far behind in that regard, though I find their GUI to be more difficult with regards to the integration of these services.

#89 Posted by -Wicked_Sick- (1171 posts) -
Man I have both an Xbox, and an Xbox 360 but Microsoft is embarrassing.
#90 Posted by dxmcat (1200 posts) -

In terms of entertainment, PS3 def wins.

Bluray for one thing (sorry if you dont have a larger 1080p tv to appreciate it), as well as seamless oepration with network streaming via PC (though best results are yielded through a 3rd party prog). You can swap the hard-drive to any size you want, 1Gbps ethernet (helps with 1080p movie streaming), and a super easy interface to get to your movies/etc without being assaulted with 9000 ads.

Better entertainment device? Definitely PS3. Better gaming device? definitely PC.

It's sad that someone from their company stooped so low. He sounds like a user from this forum with how stupid his statement is. That being said, both Console are great. Only fanboyistic (don't know if that's a word...) and moronic children can't enjoy both.

yeah , i can imagine it being entertaining for MS by looking at the Millions of income for something that should be and is free elsewhere , if they would at least offer dedicated servers for all xbox games in return i wouldnt say a word

He's on about the fact that the 360 has the better overall library according to meta. You know people don't just play exclusives.
